Hi, I'm, new to the forums, but need help diagnosing a problem with my wifes car. It's a 1991 Civic Limited Edition Sedan. I believe it's a DX (?). Anyway, it began becoming difficult to start, but now the car wants to stall out every now and then. It usually does this when you give it gas, whether its from a dead stop or while moving. When I drove it, it coughs and sputters a bit, then seems to "catch" and function normally. The problem seems to be getting worse day by day. I followed her one day and when it sputtered to stall, then "caught" a small but noticeable puff of black smoke (I'm assuming fuel) puffs out of the tailpipe. I replaced the fuel filter, but no luck. No CEL, so no codes, and I'm assuming / hoping its not a major issue. Is there any way to find out what this is before spending a load of cash? Thanks.
